Strategies and Interventions

Move directly from assessment results to actionable student support. Leveraging the MTSS framework, our Strategies and Interventions Package completes the loop for a comprehensive skill-building system.

The Strategies and Interventions Package leverages research-based insights generated by the DESSA to create easy and effective skill building plans for educators in the classroom.

Why Aperture Strategies and Interventions?

Comprehensive Social Emotional Learning System

The Aperture System allows educators to proactively identify at-risk students and provides a roadmap for supporting their students' social and emotional skill development, closing the loop for a comprehensive learning system.

Capacity to Take Immediate Action with DESSA Results

Following screening or assessment, there is no question of “Now what?”. The Strategies and Interventions Package provides immediate next steps for educators to begin supporting their students.

Data-Driven Next Steps

Strategies and Intervention recommendations are directly tied to DESSA data, so the plans are curated to address your students’ specific strengths and areas for growth.

Reduces Educator Burden

Educators no longer need to spend time creating intervention plans or preparing lessons in advance. Upon completion of the DESSA, they receive detailed universal SEL strategies and intervention plans with no additional work required.

Track Strategy Plans and Create Custom Groups

The Strategies and Interventions Package includes an easy organizational system to help educators keep track of which strategies are being used and which have been completed. Educators can also apply filters to create custom groups of students to allow for more targeted strategy application

MTSS Approach

Leveraging the MTSS framework, our Strategies and Interventions Package focuses on prevention, addressing the needs of all students—academically, behaviorally, socially and emotionally.

Data-Driven Recommendations

Transform data results into immediate action and build on the collective strengths of your students!

Upon completion of the DESSA, educators receive SEL Strategies and Tier 2 Intervention Recommendations directly aligned to students’ DESSA assessment results.

The Data-Driven Recommendations take all of the guesswork out of post-assessment action planning and give educators immediate access to resources to support their students.

Universal SEL Strategies

The SEL strategies are research-based and provide direct instruction of SEL skills in the six DESSA competency areas.

Designed for Tier 1 instruction, each strategy is designed for ease of use and requires little to no advance preparation. Strategies include step-by-step instructions with options for extension activities so educators have flexibility in how and when they incorporate SEL into the school day.

Reflection activities included with each strategy strengthen students’ self-awareness skills and encourage educators to consider what worked for their students.

Targeted Intervention Programs

Targeted intervention programs consist of five multi-week programs designed for targeted small groups of students who need intensive competency building.

Each Tier 2 intervention lesson allows students to build skills through repeated and regular practice. Every lesson follows a similar sequence of activities and includes facilitator support guides and tools.

Strategies Tracking

Strategies Tracking is an easy organizational system to help educators keep track of the strategies they are implementing and whether they have been completed.

Easily record at point of use which strategies are being used and which have been completed. Track which strategies are being used across multiple sites. Apply filters to create custom groups of students to allow for more targeted strategy application. Select specific students or groups of students to track their progression.

Strategies and Interventions Package Overview

“The Aperture System data is fantastic because it allows us to establish a baseline of where students are at. The full DESSA has been the greatest experience so far — using data to inform how I support students. I’ve been able to take data and apply specific, targeted strategies to help students grow.”
